‘My lecturers and friends were brilliant and
helpful in guiding me and making me feel
like I belonged despite not having studied
for more than 30 years.’




Despite not having higher education
qualifications, a 30-year career across a
wide range of business endeavours reaped
dividends for Kate Crouch. ‘I had started
a Bachelor of Business degree before a
“eureka moment” arrived through a casual
conversation with one of my lecturers. It was
a pleasant shock when my lecturer told me
my work history enabled me to apply for a
postgraduate degree,’ Kate says. The mother
of three became the proud holder of both
a Griffith Graduate Certificate in Marketing
and a Master of Marketing two years on. ‘I
highlighted my event management experience
as well as the ownership of two successful
businesses. To top it off, the credits I earned
while doing my Graduate Certificate were
transferred to my Masters which meant I
graduated with two degrees. My lecturers
and friends were brilliant and helpful in guiding
me and making me feel like I belonged despite
not having studied for more than 30 years.’

‘Right from being accepted into
the MBA program, the assistance
has been amazing.’




As the Director of Clinical Education at the
Wesley Hospital, Wendy Zernike knows all
too well the benefits of a personal touch.
Whether dealing with patients, workers,
families or other stakeholders in her
day-to-day duties, Wendy believes in the
importance of a supportive environment,
something she experienced firsthand
during her MBA studies at Griffith.
‘Right from being accepted into the MBA
program, the assistance has been amazing,’
she says. ‘If you’re worried about how
you’re going to cope, are stressed about
how you might get your assessment done,
or need some help with what to do next,
the comforting thing is that it all works out
because the Griffith staff are so helpful.’

     Koda-Jo Berry-Stewart had just graduated
     from a Master of Social Work at Griffith
     when she decided to head back to university.
     ‘I found out about the Master of Mental Health
     Practice at my graduation ceremony, and it
     was a light bulb moment,’ she says.
     ‘Not only will this degree add value to my
     job, but it will also allow me to explore my
     passion for mental health.’ After graduating
     from her first Masters degree, Koda-Jo found
     employment at Neami National, which provides
     community-based mental health services.
     She combines full-time employment with her
     studies thanks to Griffith’s flexible online study
     options. ‘The resources are great, and the
     faculty is amazing. I wouldn’t have been able
     to juggle work and study any other way.’

     Clare Polkinghorne, pictured right in
     yellow, has played football (soccer) at the
     highest level. She is currently captain of
     the Brisbane Roar and is also co-captain
     of the Matildas, having represented her
     country at two FIFA World Cups and the
     2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
     Clare has also completed undergraduate
     study in criminology with a double degree
     in psychological science, and found she
     enjoyed it so much she wanted to study
     further. She is now undertaking a Master
     of Criminology and Criminal Justice at
     Griffith. The flexibility of external study
     at Griffith has enabled Clare to pursue
     both academic and sporting goals and cope
     with the demands of long distance travel.
